Excellent Food and Plenty of Choice

Dined here recently with 2 friends and really enjoyed it. Lovely views if you get some warm weather to eat outside. Great staff - nothing was a problem and everything was delivered with a smile. Fire fries are totally delicious!! Well worth a visit if you're in Cobh.

Enjoyed a great seafood dinner here in an informal, casual atmosphere on a sunny evening during the week.

A quick stop for lunch while we are in Cork to see family, the Quays looked appealing. We had a couple of bowls of chowder. The soup was excellent, as was the accompanying Guinness and Murphys. The proprietor Noel Owens took the time to have a chat. Recommended.

A delightful place to share a Guinness or have a cup of tea. Free WiFi made it very popular. Plus some excellent food added to its appeal. Very easy to get to & one can sit outside on the occasional sunny days that Cobhenjoys from time to time. Many visitors who vist Cobh in regard to the Titanic & Lusitania... More

Everything was perfect that girls serving are so much more than just helpful always... More

Had lunch on the deck here in mid June. Sat near the waters edge eating chowder, drinking a glass of Guinness and watching the world go by. A little bit of heaven. Highly recommend food, location and staff.

Very good food in a smashing location on the waters edge. Excellent and friendly professional service and a funny joke telling waiter (John). Can highly recommend a visit
